From an unnamed source:

Hi Resident Evil Fans!

We are happy to announce that the wait for new Resident Evil 5 content is almost over! The new online multiplayer Versus mode will be available to download on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7, 2009. For 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, or $4.99 on the PlayStation Network, Resident Evil fans will be able to go up against each other for the most terrifying Versus mode to date. 

Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer’s Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. In Survivor’s Rule, players hunt the most dangerous game, each other! Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles.

I'm interested in how this is going to turn out. It could be an epic fail though.

Competitive Majini killing sounds entertaining, but should be free.  Pass.

Ugh. Five dollars for a versus mode that probably wouldn't work all that well with RE5's controls? Should be free.

Not getting it unless it's free. Capcom can make up all the excuses they want, this should have been free.

It is not. A mode they want us to buy, that should have been in the original release? No thanks!

Dude. Person v. Person battles are completely counter to the game's control system.

Also, people are going to abuse the hell out Wesker.  I don't even care.  Maybe the Majini-killing thing might be fun, but bleh.

I don't see this working honestly. They should have just upgraded Mercenaries and throw in new maps and characters. I would pay for that.

Seriously though, I'll be picking it up as soon as I can.
